: Env: Pentium 120, 2 IDEs. Win98.

: I have a problem to keep the BIOS settings (maybe due to a battery failure), so every time the CMOS setting goes to default seeings.
: The "default" settings only have the first master HD be "AUTO". Thus I can only use one HD.
: How can I add a second HD in this situation withou changing the battery-embeded COMS chip?
: (Currently the second HD is connected as first slave and can be detedted by COMS, but it backs to default as soon as power up)

You need a new battery if it has run out, as you will have to put in the drive settings every time you startup for both drives, can be tricky if it is solderd on, sometimes near the battery there is a 3/4 pin connector for an external battery to be fitted.
